Blazekin is a good Sweeper, but Fire, leaving a Rain deduction. Plus you have another Fire type.

Swampert is a good bulky Tank / Sweeper.

Set:

Swampert @ Leftovers
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SAtk
Relaxed Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
-Ice Beam
-Mirror Coat
-Surf
-Earth Power

Sceptile would probably work best. Fast plus powerful. Gets great coverage.

Set:

Sceptile @ Flying Gem
Trait: Overgrow
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
-Acrobatics
-Leaf Blade
-Hone Claws
-Earthquake
